2015 Christian Clerget Echezeaux Grand Cru.... "powerful, balanced and strikingly long finish"

The best wine I have ever tasted at this domaine
 
A couple of week's ago I tasted the 2015 vintage at Domaine Christian Clerget. This a small domaine of just 6 hectares with many small parcels spread across numerous communes.

The first vintage we imported was 2009 and we have brought their wines in each year since.
I can say with honesty that the 2015's are the finest wines I have ever tasted at this domaine. And at the top of the tree is a stunning Echezeaux from the climat of En Orveaux.
The Clergets vines were planted immediately after World War II and at around 70 years of age are producing small grapes with serious intensity. In 2015 Christian used 20% whole bunch and the result is a wine of haunting nuance, great texture and terrific complexity.
It is, quite simply, the best wine I have ever tasted at the domaine.
I have added another 12 bottles to our allocation but that is all I can get. The wine really is exceptional and I recommend you grab a few for the cellar before it all goes. The wine will also have a new label with the addition of the climat "En Orveaux".
The 2015 Echezeaux from Christian Clerget is available at a 15% Pre Arrival Discount.

Clerget Echezeaux Label
Burghound(from a 1.1 ha parcel located in En Orveaux that was planted in 1947). A restrained, fresh and beautifully layered nose displays notes of black cherry liqueur, anise, violet, Asian-style tea and star anise. The sleekly muscular and agreeably intense middle weight plus flavors also brim with dry extract that helps to buffer the firm tannic spine on the powerful, balanced and strikingly long finish. This is terrific though at least some patience will be necessary.
 92-94 Points

That is an excellent score and review from Burghound!
